= 20 – (* + 7)
= 20 – * – 7 = 13 – *
Clearly the difference of the two sums
will be multiple of 11 if 13 – * = 11
∴ 13 – 11 = *
2 = *
* = 2
∴ Required smallest number = 2.
(v) The given number = 1723*4
Sum of its digits in odd places
= 4 + 3 + 7 = 14
Sum of its digits in even places
= * + 2 + 1 = * + 3

## FAQs on RS Aggarwal Solutions: Factors & Multiples (Exercise 2B) - Mathematics (Maths) Class 6

 1. What are factors and multiples?
Ans. Factors are the numbers that can be divided evenly into a given number. Multiples, on the other hand, are the numbers that are obtained by multiplying a given number by any whole number.
 2. How can I find the factors of a given number?
Ans. To find the factors of a given number, you can divide the number by different numbers starting from 1 and going up to the given number. The numbers for which the division gives a remainder of 0 are the factors of the given number.
 3. What is the difference between factors and multiples?
Ans. Factors are the numbers that divide evenly into a given number, while multiples are the numbers obtained by multiplying a given number by any whole number. Factors are smaller than or equal to the given number, whereas multiples are always greater than or equal to the given number.
 4. How can I determine if a number is a multiple of another number?
Ans. To determine if a number is a multiple of another number, you can divide the first number by the second number. If the division gives a remainder of 0, then the first number is a multiple of the second number.
 5. Can a number be both a factor and a multiple of another number?
Ans. Yes, a number can be both a factor and a multiple of another number. For example, if 5 is a factor of 10, then 10 is a multiple of 5. The two concepts are related but different.
